OFF. -- The schooner MAZEPPA, of Oswego, which during a severe storm was driven ashore a few days ago at Kettle Point, on the Canada side of Lake Huron, has been got off without material injury, arriving at this port on Sunday night, in tow of the tug PARKER. About 1,000 bushels of grain were thrown overboard, which, aside from the expense of pulling her off, may be considered all the loss she sustained. She proceeded on her voyage to Oswego yesterday afternoon. --- Detroit Free Press.
